What next for the hunting ban?

The Labour Party fought long and hard for the ban on hunting, and so it’s no surprise that we now find them fighting equally as hard to protect the Hunting Act. It’s great that the majority of supporters of all three main political parties support the Hunting Act.

On the Back the Ban website, you can now tell the Labour Party what you’d like them to do with the Hunting Act in future. This is encouraging, following as it does the launch of the Conservatives Against Fox Hunting campaign, and rumours of something similar emerging in the Lib Dems are being heard in Westminster.

    I am taking my dogs out at dusk this evening. I will be setting them after any deer that i find in my woods.

    You are welcome to come and monitor me if you wish.

    It is quite right that the Hunting Act is publicly broken because it is an absurd law.

    Is there any need for such spite? You are going out killing animals, or saying that you are, just for the sake of proving a point.

    Now I must admit, I don’t know much about hunting in foreign countries. However I believe that tolerance is key. Instead of outright banning something, why not make those who wish to participate in the sport fund the foxes and their environment? I’ve done a bit of research on the American hunting system (http://bazzah.wordpress.com/2010/04/09/hunt-for-conservation/) and have learned that the money made from arms, ammunition, and licenses go directly back towards the animals/environment.
    There is very little room for intolerance in this world, and prohibition is the worst of it.
